Dremio-admin backup

Can dremio-admin backup using the “system” user to get rid of showing the credential information? Or any methods can skip passing the plain-text password?

@Ming You can do -p and not enter it and hit enter and then enter password when it prompts ot use local attach backup that does not require user name and password


Hi balaji.ramaswamy,

I will prepare a cron job to backup the dremio, I do not want to have a plain-text password keep in a file. So, do you have a better way?

@Ming You can use the local attach method mentioned in the docs, link pasted in my previous reply
